One of the most popular fisheries in Eastern Washington is for kokanee on Lake Chelan. Every year these fish are abundant and keep anglers busy even when temperatures are still very chilly. There was a kokanee derby on Lake Chelan recently and pretty much every boat came off the water with limits. Some in just a couple of hours. Although I was getting reports of kokanee of 15 to 16 inches being caught on Chelan, the biggest one turned into the derby was 14 inches. I wish anglers would take a tape measure with them. I really like this kokanee fishery. Even if the fish aren’t big the action is typically fast, and people that don’t get to fish a lot have a ball cranking in fish after fish. I am very eager to get up to Chelan as soon as I can get my boat dug out of the snowbank up here. I just had to include a photo of my wife Eileen on my Facebook Page that shows her scraping the snow off the windshield of the boat at the launch. We drove through a snowstorm on our way, but it turned out to be a nice sunny day.
